Expected to debut at EICMA 2016 in November.
The 2017 KTM Duke 390 has been spied in India yet again. YouTube channel Burn N Run has published a quick walkaround video of the upcoming model.
The spy video gives a close look at the 2017 KTM Duke 390’s new handlebar, instrument panel, switchgear, frame, headlamp, engine and exhaust. With an evolutionary redesign, the second generation model is set to bring a lot of major changes. For instance, the vertical instrument panel has been replaced by a new horizontal one, the frame has been tweaked presumably for improved ride and handling, and there’s a regular exhaust canister replacing the previous (current model’s) underbelly unit.
The 2017 KTM Duke 390 will likely feature an improved version of the current model‘s 373.27 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which currently develops 32 kW (44 hp) and 35 Nm of torque. Ride-by-wire technology will be available to choose from different ride modes. A few more mechanical changes expected are a second counter-balancer shaft for the engine, ECU update and cooling system improvements.
The 2017 KTM Duke 390 is expected to be unveiled at EICMA 2016 in Milan, Italy in November. It will be launched in India sometime in 2017.
